Excellent service from the start of the consultation process to the installation. I chose them upon recommendation from my very discerning building contractor who has electrically controlled Aquarius blinds and awnings installed in his own house. Well, I was certainly not disappointed! The Aquarius team are as friendly as they are professional, which made the whole process enjoyable, straightforward and very rewarding. The blinds all look superb and I can’t recommend Aquarius Blinds enough.
